WN 1 Calculation of Interest on Gunvant’s Capital
Interest on Capital = `15000 xx 12/100 xx 6/12 = 900`
WN 2 Calculation of Gunvant’s share of profits
Profit of last financial year (2013-14) = 24,000
Gunvant's share in profits = `24000 xx 1/4 xx 6/12 = 3000`
WN 3 Adjustment of Goodwill
Average Profit = `(18,000+21,000+24,000)/3 = 21000`
Goodwill of the firm = `21000 xx 2 = 42000`
Gunvant's Share of Goodwill = `42000 xx 1/4 = 10500`
Anant will pay = `10500 xx 2/5 = 7000`
Sampat will pay = `10500 xx 1/3 = 3500`
WN 4 Calculation of Gunvant’s Share in Reserve Fund
Gunvant's Share in General Reserve = `9600 xx 1/4 = 2400`
